John Key is a cornflakes man
John Key is a fan of cornflakes for breakfast but wishes he could have icecream instead.
Children from Hillsborough playcentre asked New Zealand’s Prime Minister some tough questions on Friday morning.
Three-year-old Niko Spencer was deep in conversation with Key while they were playing with play-dough together.
Spencer asked Key what he wanted for Christmas and what his favourite food to eat for breakfast is.
While Spencer is hoping for a fire truck from Santa Claus, Key has his eyes set on a new golf shirt and shoes from his wife.
‘‘Hopefully they’ll make me play better,’’ he said.
In 2014 Key’s handicap was 10.9 on paper, but he said it’s closer to 13.
Key and his son Max Key played gold with Barack Obama near the US President’s Hawaii holiday home in 2014.
Despite wishing he could have ice cream for breakfast, it seems the Prime Minister is a fan of cornflakes and not so keen on porridge.
Key was visiting the playcentre alongside Parmjeet Parmar who is running as the National candidate in the Mt Roskill by-election.
The by-election on December 3 was needed after the seat became vacant when former MP Phil Goff was elected Auckland mayor this year.
